You’ve probably had those instances where you needed to type a lot of things. Or, if you’re like me, you prefer typing on a bigger keyboard rather than the small one on your phone.
Whichever the case may be, you’ll probably need a separate keyboard to get the job done. Sure, you can type messages on you HTC EVO 4G. But it’s not for everyone. Most of us have gotten used to the standard sized keyboards that we use regularly. So, this make us better at it. As a result, it’s not only more convenient to use them, you also spend less time because you can type faster.
The one solution to this problem is to set up a Bluetooth keyboard and sync it with your HTC EVO 4G. This will allow you to use your keyboard along with your phone. In case you’re not aware of it, you can also connect your mouse to your phone and use that to select and navigate.
But, it’s important to make sure you properly set one device up first before going on to the next. I speak from experience. Setting them up together takes some figuring out because one device the latest one you install may just kick the older connected bluetooth device out. It’s not to say that they aren’t compatible. Nor is it that they can’t run together. But, you do need to figure out the kinks to get them to work.
Another issue with the setup is that depending on the brand of keyboard, or other accessory you plan to connect, the steps may be different. This means that now all the steps will be the same. It will vary based on the type of accessory and the brand you want to connect, although the basic principles are the same.
Now, lets get on to connecting a Bluetooth keyboard to your HTC EVO 4G phone.
Begin by going to your main menu and tapping on settings. From there, choose wireless & settings to go into your connections.
The next step is to select Bluetooth settings.
At this point you have the choice of initiating the connection from your phone or your Bluetooth device. If you start from your handset, click on Scan for Devices.
One it discovers a possible match, it will make a Bluetooth Pairing request. This means you’ll now need to enter the pass key on both the devices to make the pair successful.
If you entered the correct ones, you’ll see the connection made and both devices are paired.
This will let you start typing using your regular keyboard onto your HTC EVO 4G.
